Journal Page

This is a journal page I finished late last night. My old friend the Universe must be on my mind because it is the theme of the page. I'm sorry I didn't take a picture before I added the collage elements. I really liked the paint application.

I found representations of the Universe: the Eagle Nebula, Saturn, Jupiter and the Galileo module, the Crab Nebula, the human brain, a fossilized ammonite shell. The universe within and without. The journaling includes information about each.

There is also a story here. In late December I was visiting Dragonfly Reflections and found a post about messages from the universe and the web site I now receive a daily message from the Universe by way of Tut and have included parts of them on this page. Things like:
"It's within you. The answers you seek. The direction you want." and "the power to be whoever you want to be. Your dreams are not yours by mere whim. They've been matched to your gifts... Listen (that's my word for the year) to your heart. You have the right stuff."

The Next Chapter started today with the first chapter from The 12 Secrets of Highly Creative Women by Gail McMeekin. One of the sentences I marked to quote is: "your creative self is alive and waiting for your invitation to evolve. Dare to embrace your creative self and manifest your dreams." Interesting how the journal page came first and then the reading of this book.

Oh, great Universe. I get the message. Listen it is! Create! Play in the garden! Paint! Knit! Yippee!

Oh wonderful. I love your journal pages. Sometimes I write, sometimes I collage in my journal, but I never put it together like that. It's beautiful.

I too get my daily message from Tut. Somedays it is so amazing, and everyday it brings a smile.

Yippee indeed!

I'm listening more and more to those sacred messages...and lately they've come so easily that I don't dare ignore for fear lighting will strike me down!

I have to admit that I don't get collaging...but I am intrigued nonetheless. So looking forward to coming by here often for insight...and also to offer any support I can to a fellow creative!

This reminds me I need to get started on my new goals. I'm starting to really believe that when you take on step in the direction of your dreams the universe takes a lot more steps - gah, I can't remember the quote but you know what I mean, right? I like the vibrancy of your journal pages.

Have you seen the image thefts going on at Polyvore and other sites? Check the link at my site: or read and make sure your work hasn't been stolen as well.

Awesome journal!
One of my goals is to do journal/scrapbooking of my new mom life and you have given me gorgeous inspiration for that! Thank you. May your creativity jump in leaps and bounds on this journey.

Thanks for your comments over at my place. I do like this start you've posted for Paulette's class. I downloaded the videos then watched the first one - it took a couple of tries before it would play all the way through. I hope your new computer is functional soon. Ain't technology grand, though!
